Too Hot in Riviera Maya in July?

We are trying to decide if a stay at an all inclusive resort that is not quite on the beach will be too hot in July. The Riu Tequila has a sister resort across the street that is on the beach and we can use their facilities, but travel agent wondered if we might regret not having the ocean breezes at this time of year. Also, if you know this resort, is it a good chice for teens and pre-teens?

Hi Gini,
It is extremely hot in that area in July, but if you are going to be on the beach almost all of the time, and your hotel has a/c, you should be OK.
If you do not have a/c, you will be beyond miserable if the hotel is not oceanfront. Playa del Carmen's downtown in July is unbelievably steamy. We're from coastal N.C., and used to hot, humid weather, but it's still tough on us. People from the UK, Germany and many Northern US states are amazed by how wickedly hot it gets there.

Aw shucks, Ann! Thanks for the compliment!
If your hotel is oceanfront, you will be fine. I do not think the hotel zone in Cancun is nearly as hot as Playa del Carmen simply because of the topography.
Even in downtown Cancun in July, it didn't seem as bad as PDC. The buildings are tall and close together in PDC, and downtown is just very "close," whereas Cancun's hotel zone is very flat and surrounded by water. The buildings - except for the hotels - are widely spaced and lowrise, and there is usually a little bit of a breeze blowing even in town. It's always comfortable on the beach.
The Mexican government "engineered" Cancun as a resort area in the late 60's, and they picked a spot that is nearly ideal climate-wise.
